« on: August 04, 2011, 08:56:39 AM »
i mighta missed it, but why does it keep saying "to beat the band" in the book? or am i just a child wandering into the middle of a movie having an acid flashback?

Not sure which book.
If it's Dude related I suppose it's because of the stranger saying to beat the band.

Welp, that about does her, wraps her all up.  Things seem to've worked out
pretty good for the Dude'n Walter, and it was a purt good story, dontcha
think?   Made me laugh to beat the band.  Parts, anyway.

It's slang. It means basically "a lot" "very much" etc...

Sorry, the abide guide
guess I never cought that. I always thought it was beat the man (the whole bear/bar thing again).

that's near the end of the movie, my mind is pretty limber by then. Guess I need to just shut up and listen.

Thanks for bringing new things to light man
